DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add chicken, cover and return to a boil.
  • Boil chicken for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn off the heat and let the chicken steep, covered, until no longer pink in the thickest part of the breast, 8 to 12 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a plate and let cool for approximately 20 minutes. (The chicken can be prepared a day ahead of the rest of the salad, if desired.).
  • Cut chicken into 1/2-inch cubes.
  • Skip 1-4 if you are using canned chicken. Drain liquid from can.
  • In a medium bowl combine celery, mayonnaise, mustard, onions, almonds, tarragon, lemon juice and pepper and stir to blend.
